Have you ever been confronted by a ladder and walked around it instead of under it...We persist in our old, superstitious beliefs even when they no longer serve us...next time, walk under the ladder and free yourself!
Each of my paintings is a collection of under paintings. I build up layers of paint and texture before I introduce a figure. This provides a rich backdrop for the image to live on. It also helps me to mentally prepare for the story I'm about to tell.
I use symbolism to communicate my thoughts and ideas. The symbols I use create a pictorial language that I share with my audience. Each piece is a unique expression of my response to my inner world and the world around me.
